Product Details

Praise

“the text is heartfelt, and Minor’s sketchbook-style illustrations have an immediacy and energy that will make readers feel that they’re peering over his shoulder as the drawings take shape.”—Publishers Weekly

“A fanciful and enthusiastic romp through Letterville that could spark a love of reading and writing in some children. Best for one-on-one sharing.”—School Library Journal


“Journey through a land where words take flight and spark creativity. A fantastical bespectacled rabbit is readers’ guide into a top hat and through Johnston and Minor’s wonderland of words as they celebrate the power of language to instruct, inspire, and delight children. . . . A charming ode to the lyricism of language.”—Kirkus Reviews


“Talented picture-book author Johnston here celebrates language itself, starting with letters . . . Casual and highly textured graphite and digital art, with letters and words in crisp font roaming through the spreads, is a significant departure from Minor’s usually polished style, and its rollicking vigor is inviting.”Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
